Library and Information Studies 950: African American Print Culture

Senchyne, Jonathan

How have African American people contributed to the production, circulation, and consumption of printed texts and how have cultures of print shaped the social, political, and cultural contexts of African American life and expression? How and why have African American people created, deployed, and used print to advance projects of self definition, liberation, community building, survival, and art? How have predominantly-white and historically-black memory institutions, academic practices, and political formations contributed to the production, loss, and recovery of African American print? The doctoral level seminar will focus on critical methods and research practices of particular interest to those who want to produce scholarly writing in humanities disciplines and digitally curated presentations of books, print, manuscripts, and other material texts.
